  • 9.5 ounces soba noodles - or noodle of choice, cooked according to package instructions
  • 8 ounces tempeh - roughly chopped into small pieces (I purchase my tempeh from Trader Joe's)
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 2 red bell pepper - seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 large cucumber - julienned
  • 4 large carrots - julienned
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro - chopped
  • ½ cup green onions - chopped
  • cup mint - chopped


  • Prepare the dressing: Place all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until fully combined. Set aside.
  • With the noodles prepared and vegetables chopped, prepare the tempeh. In a large bowl combine chopped tempeh the liquid smoke, soy sauce, and fish sauce. Toss to coat. Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat and add 1-2 tablespoons oil. When oil is hot add tempeh (with remaining marinade) and reduce heat to medium low. Cook for 4-6 minutes, stirring frequently, or until tempeh just barely starts to brown. Remove from heat.
  • Prepare the salad: In a large bowl, toss together the chopped vegetables, fresh chopped herbs, and tempeh. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Finally, add the noodles and very gently toss everything together.
